I can attach an image to SAP CRM WebUI but was not able to view it

Dear Experts,

I was trying to attach an image document to SAP CRM WebUI through cl_crm_documents (Method :- create_with_table) by passing the binary value.

I receive a string value for the image from IOS team and I convert the same to Xstring and binary in the code. And pass the binary value to the method "create_with_table".

And I could see the document gets attached. When I try to open the same. The image looks like a small cross bar(i.e :- As if we try to open an unsupported file format.) Though I tried passing both jpeg and png files.

On the other hand, when I try to attach the same image manually in WebUI. I could view the attached image perfectly. Please find the below code snippet I have used.

Help me out in getting it resolved.

CONCATENATE it_flup_gen2-or_img_faci_desc '.pdf' INTO ls_file_access_info-file_name.

* Convert string to Xstring value for FACI Image



text = it_flup_gen2-or_img_faci

mimetype = 'application/pdf'


buffer = lv_faci_xstr


failed = 1


IF sy-subrc = 0.



buffer = lv_faci_xstr


output_length = lv_len


binary_tab = lv_file_content_binary.

* Assign file properties

ls_file_access_info-file_size = lv_len.

ls_file_access_info-binary_flg = 'X'.

ls_file_access_info-file_name = ls_file_access_info-file_name.

ls_file_access_info-mimetype = 'application/pdf'.

APPEND ls_file_access_info TO lt_file_access_info.

* Assign business object

ls_business_object-instid = lv_guid.

ls_business_object-typeid = 'BUS2000125'.

ls_business_object-catid = 'BO'.

** Fill property values

** Get the unique name for the Attachment

ls_properties-name = skwfc_prop_relative_url.

ls_properties-value = it_flup_gen2-or_img_faci_desc.

APPEND ls_properties TO lt_properties.

** Get the decription and title

ls_properties-name = skwfc_prop_description.

ls_properties-value = it_flup_gen2-or_img_faci_desc.

APPEND ls_properties TO lt_properties.

** Get the document mime type

ls_properties-name = skwfc_prop_mime_type.

ls_properties-value = 'application/pdf'.

APPEND ls_properties TO lt_properties.

ls_properties-name = 'LANGUAGE'.

ls_properties-value = sy-langu.

APPEND ls_properties TO lt_properties.


* Creating a document with provided data

CALL METHOD cl_crm_documents=>create_with_table


business_object = ls_business_object

properties = lt_properties

file_access_info = lt_file_access_info

file_content_binary = lv_file_content_binary

raw_mode = 'X'


loio = ls_loio

phio = ls_phio

error = ls_error.

IF ls_error IS INITIAL.



wait = 'X'.

    Check the mimetype and passed values while attaching through WEBUI in method CREATE_WITH_TABLE then use the same values you are getting in the debugger in coding and check.

    Hi Sabari,

    Try using the mimetype as image/jpeg for jpeg image type and image/png for .png image type formats.

    You can check MIME type by using the FM "SDOK_MIMETYPE_GET" by giving the file extension type.

    Best Regards,
